Is certainly a Hobby. The fairly even pattern from leading to trailing edge, through all the underwing and tail. The more pointed wings than a Brown Falcon, the face pattern, the rather orangish colour, the complete absence of the dark feathers on the upper legs………

My mystery bird for Christmas is this raptor I photographed above the Stuart Highway on my way to Newhaven back in 2011. I have made a wild bet (usually wrong) but I would appreciate your views and reasons so I can label it correctly... just in case it is something else...
